“It’s important for people to understand that sexual violence is any unwanted sexual touch or hit and it’s really important for people to know it doesn’t have to be violent, it’s not typically a stranger, it’s most often someone that you know.” [email protected] Twitter: @SUNDave Dormer Increased support and awareness around sexual violence will be available to SAIT students thanks to a partnership with Calgary Communities Against Sexual Abuse. we sat around and were talking about some of the things we could do to improve life on campus and this was the number one thing that jumped out at us,” said Michael Sondermann, associate registrar at SAIT.
Raising Awareness: SAITSA VP Student Life Thao Nguyen presenting the official poster for SAIT's second annual Sexual Awareness Day on Tuesday, Feb. The event was held as a way of raising awareness of safe sex practices among students.
Asked why he was doing this, Auernheimer said: "I went straight for government employees because they seem the easiest to shame." Millions of others remain unnamed for now, but anyone can open the files -- which remain freely available online.
That could allow anyone to extort Adult Friend Finder customers.
The site, which boasts 64 million members, claims to have "helped millions of people find traditional partners, swinger groups, threesomes, and a variety of other alternative partners." The information Adult Friend Finder collects is extremely personal in nature.
When signing up for an account, customers must enter their gender, which gender they're interested in hooking up with and what kind of sexual situations they desire.
Suggestions Adult Friendfinder provides for the "tell others about yourself" field include, "I like my partners to tell me what to do in the bedroom," "I tend to be kinky" and "I'm willing to try some light bondage or blindfolds." The hack, which took place in March, was first uncovered by independent IT security consultant Bev Robb on her blog Teksecurity a month ago. It wasn't until this week, when England's Channel 4 News reported on the hack, that Adult Friend Finder was named as the victim.
“What we’re trying to do on the policy side is we’re using policy to encourage victims to come out and speak out, that’s essentially what the policy is about, encouraging people because one of the things we learned in our research is a lot of people don’t report (sexual violence) because of a lack of certainty in the future about what happens.” That’s true both on and off campus said Haley Scott, education and outreach program director at CCASA.
“There is a lot of misconceptions and misunderstandings about sexual violence in our community so conversation is important at all ages,” she said.“We’re extending and augmenting our counselling services for students,” said Sondermann.
